At Pinewood Film Studios there is now the largest underwater stage in Europe, so this qualification is very relevant.
Diving in the Far East is very cost effective compared to diving in the UK.
Accommodation and food are far cheaper, also being away from your daily schedule lets you concentrate on all the course work you will be doing. To attain Dive Master status you need 60 logged dives.
On the Dive Master course you cover Diving skills, teaching and supervising skills, and risk assessment of dive trips - all these skills are perfect for the stunt industry. You might also find, like me, that you fall in love with diving and the sea.
|At the dive location we use in Malaysia, on a beautiful, unspoilt tropical island, it is possible to start at 7:30am and get three dives in a day. We personally recommend three trips of a month's duration each. This will make you an experienced, safe Dive Master.|
Malaysia is hot and sunny, so the sea is warm, and the white sandy sea floor makes for fantastic filming due to the light.
There are wrecks, reefs, sharks, whales and thousands of different types of fish.
